I just watched a video about breastfeeding that channingsmom posted in the CafeMom Newcomers Club. It's about people's reactions to watching another video called "Breastfeeding from birth until two years and beyond." If you have time to watch it, here it is. Either way, keep reading.
I've also been hearing a lot of talk lately about women breastfeeding their children until they are toddlers—or even beyond.
Kelly Rutherford, one of the stars of Gossip Girl, just told Babyrazzi that she's still breastfeeding her two-year-old son Hermes. "It's an amazing bond with your child, she said. "Some cultures do it up to five years normally. I'll just do it as long as it feels right for my son."
Over in the Toddler Buzz, Cafe Cynthia has an interview with jellyphish, the owner of the Breastfeeding Toddlers/Preschoolers Group, about extended or full-term breastfeeding (feeding your baby until the age of two or beyond). She talks about the benefits of breastfeeding toddlers—and the biting! Check out what she has to say.
